The BMW 7-Series is a go-to choice for the luxury full-size sedan class, and has been for many years.
The latest model is no exception, delivering excellent driving dynamics and refined comfort, though the Panamera outdoes the 7-Series on outright performance, and also offers its unusual style.
The Mercedes-Benz S Class has long been a benchmark for the class, and with an all-new model out for 2014, it remains a solid choice for technology-conscious buyers with conservative tastes, though AMG models up the ante on both performance and curb appeal.
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS Class is a style-smart buy in the large sedan class, with its coupe-like styling putting it on natural competitive ground with the Panamera.
Luxurious and comfortable in standard form, the AMG version of the CLS Class can come off a bit harsh and hard-riding.
Maserati's latest take on the Quattroporte offers its own Italian style and passion, with opulent interior design and brisk, if not quite thrilling performance.
